No time to waste: Globally averaged concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere for the time period 803’719 BCE – today. Not only the level of CO2 in the atmosphere matters, but also the rate at which it has changed: It took us a matter of decades to achieve larger changes than previous ones, which occurred over centuries or even thousands of years. This gives species, planetary systems, and ecosystems much less time to adapt. Artwork is based on the data visualisation from s-ink.org/atmospheric-co2-concentration.
